Kissimmee Premises Liability Attorney
Premises liability law allows you to hold a negligent property owner responsible for your injuries
Property owners have a duty to make their premises safe for visitors. The premises liability doctrine applies to all kinds of locations, from private homes and office buildings to shopping malls and construction sites. If you have been injured outside your own home, it is possible that the property owner of that location is legally responsible for your ordeal.

Premises liability applies to a wide variety of situations
All property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably free of dangerous conditions. This responsibility becomes stronger if the property is used for commercial purposes or frequently receives visitors. Typical places where a property owner may be responsible for injuries include:
- Rental properties — Tenants are largely responsible for maintaining the order of their apartments. However, landlords and property owners are responsible for keeping common areas free from hazards for tenants and guests. It is the landlord’s duty to correct poor wiring, unsafe stairs and other defects.
- Shopping centers — Malls, grocery stores and any commercial property must be maintained in a safe manner for customers. They must also have adequate security, especially if they are in an area where crimes are known to occur.
- Construction sites — Although construction sites may not be open to the general public, they must be safe for employees, passersby and others who may come near them. Precautions must be taken so no one faces unnecessary risk simply by being on or around the premises.
If you were hurt in a slip and fall accident as a visitor at a private residence, office building or elsewhere, we can help you determine who is liable for your accident.
Potential hazards are everywhere
The circumstances of premises liability cases can vary widely. Types of hazards that often lead to the injuries precipitating them include:
- Slippery or wet surfaces
- Unleashed animals (dog bites)
- Inadequate security
- Chemical exposure
- Improper wiring
- Lack of fire safety precautions
- Structural defects
If these or other hazards caused you harm, the property owner may be liable for your injuries and the resulting costs. A personal injury attorney can help you make your case.
